Firsg of all, in the middle of a dive, the instructor approached one of the nurse sharks in there, grabbed it, hugged it, struggled with it fot a while before letting go....More
We left the main dock at Mahahual at about 10:15. The boat ride out took about 1 hour and 20 minutes. First dive was about 60 foot maximum. There were three of us diving and 6 snorkelers. Great first dive!!! Three nurse sharks followed us...More
